  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 2 people are interested

Compassus Hospice is looking for folks that would like to meet once or twice a month in our office to knit, crochet or sew projects for patients on hospice services. Handmade blankets and quilts provide comfort for patients and let them know that someone is thinking about them. We would like to provide a place to gather in our office to work on this type of project. Would you like to bring a few friends along and spend some time with others making these special items? If so, please contact Kim Iannacci, Volunteer Coordinator at Kimberly.iannacci@compassus.com or call (978) 777-8222 for more information.

Mission Statement

At Compassus Hospice, our mission is to preserve each patient’s dignity while removing the fear associated with dying through pain management, emotional and spiritual support. We deliver our care services wherever our patients call home, whether that home is a private home, an apartment, an assisted living community, a skilled nursing center or, in some cases, a hospital.

Description

Compassus Hospice volunteers play a vital role in carrying out our mission to preserve each patient’s dignity while removing the fear associated with dying. Individuals who are 18 and older who are willing to share one to four hours per week are encouraged to apply to our program. Serving as a volunteer will enrich your own life in ways you can’t begin to imagine.

No previous experience in the medical field is necessary, and you will be prepared for your role with a free, comprehensive training program. This training will help you learn how to provide emotional support, companionship and respite care to patients and families. Depending on your interests and schedule, you may:

  • offer companionship and respite care for patients and their families.
  • provide professional services such as companionship, music or pet therapy, or hair care.
  • assist with care for patients’ pets.
